The fit is truly to the level of an accomplished knife maker. I have had other Case Bose collaboration knives but none had this degree of perfection and some actually had 'flaws'.
Is this one the first of the Case-Bose collaboration knives ?
And did i just get lucky, or were these Wharncliffe Trappers perhaps the best for fit and finish of all the collabs ?
And finally, if this is Year One for the Collabs, does this increase it's market value now, about 20 years later ?
thanks for some help. kj

Is it fair to say that the very high standards of the first collab did not carry through to subsequent years ? Not that subsequent knives were 'bad' in any way, but the extreme attention to detail for every knife, slipped a little ?
And is the year # 1 knife (1999) now of higher market value than the other years ? Or are all collab knives valued more or less the same ?
Thanks for any additional help.
